Why It Makes Sense To Get Legal Help For Disability Claims
It is a sad truth that many people work hard for decades, yet need to stop working earlier than they wish because of a chronic injury or debilitating disease. In many instances, these people qualify for disability benefits that will help them meet their financial obligations, but for whatever reason, their application for benefits is denied.
The lawyers at Fox & Fox, S.C., protect the rights of hard-working Americans whose disability makes them unable to work, but are being denied the long-term disability benefits that they have earned and paid for. Our experience in a wide range of employment law matters provides us the insight to advocate assertively on your behalf in these disputes. We understand the tactics that insurance companies use to minimize or deny legitimate disability claims.
Determining Whether You Qualify For Benefits
Filing for disability benefits is a complex process that involves a lot of paperwork. About two-thirds of initial claims for disability benefits are denied. A higher percentage of claims are denied on the initial appeal. But it is important to not give up.
The insurance companies that deal with these forms daily have an edge over injured individuals who are unable to work and merely want the benefits they deserve. Our aim is to level the playing field.
If your long-term disability benefits have been denied, we can help you appeal that denial and ensure that the appeal presents the necessary medical information and expertise to support your claim.
We Only Collect If You Collect
It may be challenging to make ends meet while you try to collect your disability benefits. We understand this, and we work with clients in this area on a contingency fee basis. That means we only collect an attorney fee if we help you obtain benefits.
